romney, and i approve this message. athat's what the plan georged allen supports... i'm mitt romney, would cost our economy. newspapers called it "economically destructive." like allen's votes to give tax breaks to companies... that ship jobs overseas, his economic plan would... help big corporations, devastating the middle class. allen even voted against tax breaks for small businesses. virginia can't afford to go back to george allen. the democratic senatorial campaign committee... is responsible for the content of this advertising. isve and in hd, thi breaking news. >> we want italia's but two news stories. to we will continue follow any developments, in the story. a car left almost unrecognizable after hitting two metro buses. is everyone okay? e told the passengers with minor injuries. want to sit but they will say thecan see part of withtigators on the same the two buses that were hidden. this may have been the result of a police pursuit. the policem not a pursuit. there was an officer that the pursued. this is what we know so far. a:40, route 64 buses were on the .ew hampshir

[laughter] as well as a general. [laughter] lou: none of that has the immediate effect of those who have suffered under this administration. those who don't have a job and are underemployed giving up then we have a group of ceos speaking up for the multinionals we would like to go to the simpson thing. we want to raise taxes. reject it -- rejected by both republicans and democrats. we hear from business leaders they come up with this. >> how low do the fine balance? i will take that. remove the tax shelter and cut the top rate. >> rahm it -- romney is already proposing nonsense. >> we have a huge tax increase already slowing the economy down. to the clutter the tax code everyone can declare vi
of them-- when you talk to women, they think romney has the answer on the economy. and the worry here for the obama administration is married women. they are less dependent on the government, and less likely to buy the president's argument. so they're the group want obama campaign is really worried about. when i talk to the married women, on the one hand they say they think romney can handle the economy and they're worried about the republicans being too extreme and go back and forth. the romney campaign is trying to get them to drop this and think about this at the last minute. there are a small number of undecided voters -- and the question of trust. he was saying trust is a matter central to the presidency, measure important than anything else, and trying to tie that to this notion of romney changing his positions. that was also a pitch to women. romney's pitch, bipartisanship. >> schieffer: let me bring up this, a spent friday, spent a good part of the day with stu rothen bargain, and charlie cook, and i would these are the most respected analysts going today. both told me separat

[laughter] >> i'm not going to cut education funding. i don't have any plan to cut education funding. hn: education is supposed to be a local responsibility. the federal government spending $100 billion wasting it, he can't even get that? >> this is unfair. you know i admitted to you in the greenroom. this was the one even i couldn't defend. [laughter] but i will just say romney has said in his defensend education over and over again that, for example, with the money for disabled kids where kids with special needs. we will send that money to the parents to let them spend -- pick the school. he said we will send the money back to the local government, the state government. unfortunately i know we are not just fascinating to washington. i know him but he has to get elected. this will be a process of sending it back to the states which is where it should have been the fi
an argument for economic freedom and talked about the difference between the real economy that mitt romney participated in and succeeded in and the solyndra economy of president where you fund favored enterprises. >> when we come back president obama revamps his stump speech, taking credit for recent positive signs in the economy. but is our outlook that rosy? our panel takes a closer look next. ooooooooooif we want to ime our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ... nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> after losing nine million jobs in the great recession, our businesses have now add more than five million jobs over the past two and a half years, manufacturing is at its highest level since the '90s, unemployment has fallen to hit lowest level since i took office. home sales are rising, asemi lines are humming again. >> that as president oba
're going to win it. >> let's dig into that abc news/washington post, stephanie, it shows romney making headway on the economy. back in july, obama had a 16-point lead on that measure. today, it's tied. did you wait too long? >> absolutely not. i mean, you know, it's interesting that you're pointing out your national tracker poll but in the virginia poll that you just cited we are beating romney in terms of who do you trust to get the economy going? in terms of the president's plans, we're happy to talk about them. we ran a two-minute ad on it. we have been campaigning across the country on this plan. you know, whether it's putting the best trained workers all over this country. bringing jobs back to this country. rather than sending them overseas or doing some nation-building at home. we're ending two wars. these are big plans and the president laid them out at the convention and it's a second term of an obama presidency will mean. it stands in sharp contrast to romney romney's. we can look at these polls a million different ways. they all say something different. at the end of the day
with the romney campaign that connects even to the very basic issues like the economy in the states where it most matters. >> and carly fiorina, from the other side you have governor romney not focusing on trust, saying look at the record. do you want another four years like what we've had? this is how he's teeing it up down the stretch. >> this is not the time to s double down on the trickle-down policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that will bring american families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. >> we're going to talk to governor kasich in a moment, 7%p unemployment in that state. how much credit does the president deserve for improving conditions in important battleground states? >> well, that important battleground state has a republican governor. that's done exactly the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. that is he's lowered taxes and closed budget deficits. but i actually find the trust argument very odd. because president obama promised that we would have 4.2% economic growth right now.wo we have 2%. he promised an unemploym
is doing so were better in ohio. people are focused on the economy and jobs and mitt romney has a land that is pro growth and pro jobs and president obama doesn't. when you look at the last four years they are disappointed. we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression, there are 22 million americans struggling to find works and 3.5 million more women in poverty. take home pay has gone down $4,300 per family. president obama has the glossy brochure and i have looked at that brochure and i layed this role of obama during the debate preparation and it is more of the same. you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and it hasn't worked by president obama's own measurement, saying unemployment would be 15 percent lower if we passed the stimulus package. he said economic growth today would be two-thirds higher than it is. so, it hasn't worked. the one thing he does have in his new proposal is to raise taxes. yes, he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot in ohio, and that will result, according to a study by
that connects the economy in the states that matter. >> carly, you have governor romney not focusing on trust. do you want another four years like we have had. >> this is not the time to double down and trickle down on policies that failed us. it's time for bold changes that measure up to the moment and bring america's families up that the future will be better than the past. >> rachel brings up a good point focusing on ohio. 7% unemployment in that state. how much credit does the president deserve for improving conditions in battleground states? >> that important state has a republican governor that's done the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. he's lowered taxes and closed budge elt deficits. i find the trust comment hard. president obama promised we would have 4.2% economic growth right now. we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate lower than we have. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya. we have an extraordinary thing where the president comes out on friday and says i directed that everything possible should be done to aid our embassy under attack.
. there were romney supporters, obama supporters. the number-one issue was the economy with a special focus on deficit and debt. here's some of the folks we spoke to. take a listen. >> right now there are a lot of issue that i care about. for example, i am environmentally conscious. i've been a vegan since i was 9. i care about clean energy, a lot about things like that. looking around at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me that there are people who can't get jobs. even though there are a lot of other issues i care about, i think that should be the number-one concern. yes, it's a little better, but i don't think it was where it should be at all. >> you're a romney supporter? >> yes, romney. >> euyou're a romney vegan? >> yes, i am. >> that's awesome. start a romney vegan facebook page. i want to see how many romney vegans there are out. there the romney camp should start this up now. >> the older generation, i think they want reagan back, right? everyone like votes for reagan as the ideal republican candidate. i don't think necessarily -- one way or the other, you know, i never lived
, the des moines register has not in decades endorsed a republican. they have said that governor romney, and they make interesting points about it's the economy that's most important to people, and even though both president obama and governor romney are harvard law graduates and good family men, when it comes to running a business and getting people back to work, which at least 23 million people are concerned about, governor romney is the man for the job and the des moines register is endorsing governor romney. >> huge in iowa, potentially. obviously completely stuck in the polls, the president seems to have had more people coming out in early voting but the statewide polling in iowa shows romney gaining. six electoral votes, it could come down to a margin of victory in the single digits. this one matters. it's also the case that the des moines register has gotten this endorsement correct in five of the -- all five of the last races. they endorsed al gore in 2000 and he got most of the popular vote. 80s pretty good bellwether. >> we're going to take a look at that in the next hour. the
and get jobs again and get this economy growing. >> reporter: mitt romney's solution would be to ease government regulations to encourage lenders to offer refinancing to more homeowners. >> foreclosures are the lowest in five years. >> reporter: president obama wants to expand refinancing programs for borrowers. he wanthe wants to include morts owned by banks. obama also wants lenders to offer unemployed homeowners a one one-year grace period from foreclosure. >> i'm feeling very abandoned. >> reporter: juneau isn't sure either plan can help him in time. he hopes the bank will agree to sell his house for $200,000 less than he owes. >> all the taxes i've paid in the past and all the things i did for my country in the service is wasted. my life feels like it's a waste. >> reporter: with a failed business and a foreclosure on his credit report, juneau won't be able to even consider buying another home for at least three years. manuel bojorquez, cbs news, ft. lauderdale, florida. >> brennan: coming up, a reporter's notebook on afghan farmers' dependence on illicit crops. >> brennan: plant
and romney is the businessman to get the economy going but he said that he's going to reverse frank d.o.d. and i think he was -- dodd-frank and he said that he was going to maintain and that was tendering to the independents. the best i can tell he and ryan's policy simulate britain's which is in a full blown recession. so non-can tell what romney is saying or speaking. i think he says whatever to close the deal on wall street and i think he is saying anything to close the deal to the presidency. host: go ahead. guest: i think mitt romney has been pretty straightforward on where he is going to be focusing his presidency in terms of the five-point plan to get america going again and rebuild and bring 23 million jobs. regarding dodd-frank there were good ideas in there but it needs to be reworked. the whole concept of going in and legitimizing the too big to fail bank should concern all americans. so there is definitely some changes that need to be made in that piece of legislation. host: next up is kenneth from north carolina on our line for democrats. caller: good morning. i appreciat
enough. okay. >> what exactly makes you think that romney is going to provide3 this booming economy is you talk about? >> well, for one thing, he did in massachusetts. he attended with companies over and over again. he is exactly what the nation needs now. because, as you said, the government does not create jobs. we have trickle-down government. we need government to get out of the wake just to repeal obamamacare, if nothing else happened. if romney diddnot do what i expected to do with the economy, simply to repeal obamacare is going to a -- >> yes. a cia operative told "washington post" editor philip gramm that journalists can be bought and paid for for less than the price of a call girl. mitch and $300 a month. you think fox news journalists or journalists in general are guilty of taking money from the government to push propaganda? do you think fox news is guilty of taking money from the government? >> how did he come up with a call girl price? that's what i want to know. >> that they keep -- john: i'll answer that. i understand people believe that. but i was a consumer reporte

better in ohio. people are focused on the economy and jobs, and, mitt romney has a plan that is pro-growth and pro jobs to turn this thing around and, obama doesn't and when people look at the last four years they are disappointed, they must be. look, we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression. and, there are 22 million americans struggling to find work and 3.5 million more women in poverty and take home pay has gone down $4300 per family on average and it is not the right direction, we are headed in the wrong direction and you have president obama, you are right. he has a glossy brochure and i've looked at that brochure and as you know i played the role of obama during the debate preps and it is more of the same and you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and hasn't worked by president obama's own measurements, he said unemployment would be 50% lower, than it is, if we passed the stimulus package and, economic growth would be 2/3 higher than it is. and the one thing that is in his now parole is to raise taxes and he want
that the romney campaign is trying to target, particularly with a message of trying to improve the economy for you. on the converse sood you got democrats targeting poorer white women saying planned parenthood could be at stake and for those women that's -- chris: to make your point, the last nbc poll, those women, blue collar white women, 43-28 romney. let me try one other thing by you. >> it's about unemployment. chris: joe, and go around. anybody have any -- the term black swan, something that comes out of nowhere and like we had with henry kissinger back in vietnam saying peace is at hand or bin laden tape that came out at the last minute and really hurt john kerry. >> you know, 401-k's are such a huge part of the way people think about the economy now. something like 65% of the american people have them. the stock market has been drifting down. it's very close to the 13,000 mark. if it falls over the next nine or 10 days, that may not be very good for obama. if it comes back over the next nine or 10 days, it may be -- chris: it's been doing that back and forth. black swan ideas? >> you can al
. both sides with cy war and romney forces call charge, we're winning, join us or be left behind. if you don't vote we could have bush versus gore all over again. the economy, stupid. friday the last jobs report before the election. last month, it gave the president a boost. will the october number matter more? i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, "time" magazine's joe klein. the bbc's katty kay. cnbc's kelly evans. and "the washington post's" david ignatius. first up, we're staring down at the wind tunnel now but historic perfect political storm in the coming nine days of this campaign. and these closing days when we played out in mind games on both sides. the president saying he jist wants to hold on -- he just wants to hold on. >> what we have is a lead that we've maintained throughout this campaign. and we are going to just continue to drive home the message that there are two fundamentally different choices in this election. about where we take the country. chris: and he's on the air with a fear factor ad. >> 537. the number of votes that changed the course of ame
is secure in our economy is strong. that is why i am supporting mitt romney, and is why i am asking for the support of missouri's second congressional district. as a first-time candidate, i do a lot of listening. for all of the fear that i hear out there, the one thing that i hear most often is we can do better. it is what our parents taught us. i remember watching mind twill morning, noon, and at night. i saw my father deal with every take the government through his way, whether it had to do with the signs on the front of the building or the prices on the showroom floor. he knew that he could do better if government would just get out of the way it and stay out of the way. and he was right. when we get government off the backs of our job creators, small businesses have a better chance of thriving. and when small businesses thrive, so does our economy. that is why instead of raising taxes, we ought to fix our 72,000 page monstrosity of a tax code, so we can keep jobs here and bring jobs home that have gone overseas. we should repeal the president's health care law, which makes it ha
north carolina is a large financial center and romney touted as businessman to get the economy going. but he said that he's going to reverse frank dodd and i think he was pandering to tea partiers after that. so i think that was maintained to pandering to the independents. as best i can tell, he and ryan's policy assimilates accounts in britain, which is now in a full-blown recession. so i think no one can tell what romney is truly saying or speaking. he changes frequently. i think he says whatever to close the deal on wall street, and i think also he's saying anything to close the deal to the presidency. >> ann in aaurora, colorado. gideon moore gorks ahead. >> i think mitt rom itny -- romney is pretty straightforward where he will be pointing his presidency to get america rebuilding again and rebuild and bring forward jobs. dodd-frank were good ideas but on the other side it's something that needs to be reworked. the whole concept of building in and legitimizing too big to fail bank ising something that should be deeply concerned to all americans. so there's definitely changes that
of the solution in -- i hope to keep us cut of additional wars. governor romney said he was ready for us to come out of afghanistan. i did not think there is much daylight between governor romney and president obama on the war. the real difference is on the economy. i will try to keep us out of war in syria and keep us out of the intifada -- out of pre-emptive war around the country. there are probably 10 of us who are reticent to give the president unlimited authority for war. they believe congress declares war and not the president. there are probably a few democrats who believe that. there is a bipartisan libertarian, constitutional caucus on war issues. i have been working hard with many on the other side. i worked with senator why then, and senator -- senator wyden and senator udall and others. >> some have indicated they think you will run for president in 2016. any interest in seeking higher office? >> that depends on what happens next tuesday or a week from tuesday. i want to be involved in the national debate. i want to transform the republican party that is -- into a party that is comp

is a reasonable alternative . no one disqualified romney from being a competent ward of our domestic economy and the same change element that ushered in women women among women, governor it is now hurting him because women, it is not just that they feel they are not better off, that is a given. but they don't know the next four years will be. that is scary prospect. four more years of what is nota answered affirmatively and positively. >> i tell you who is not frighteping is doug. >> i appreciate that. >> he's a very real person. i asked this of michael barone who do you think wins if it was held. >> i think president obama but the election isn't today and with the momentum with governor romney it is a dead heat. the reason i say that. ohio at this point, it is still in alabama state. midwest which midwest spoke of is still at a point where it would go narrly to president obama. largely because of the gotv and resources. but governor it is too close to call. i could be the one with the red face on election day given what i am now say we have a while to go before all of the votes are cast. >>
